Jaguars linebacker Lerentee McCray was arrested in Florida early Sunday morning following a high speed chase.  He was booked in the Lake County Jail before 8 am on Sunday.

McCray was charged with a second-degree felony for fleeing/eluding police with disregard of safety to person or property.  He was also issued a citation for speeding.

From ESPN:

According to a Fruitland Park Police Department report, a patrol officer observed a white Dodge Ram pickup truck traveling at 88 mph in a 50 mph zone just before 1 a.m. Sunday. The officer tried to initiate a traffic stop but the driver used "an expletive hand gesture using their middle finger" and continued driving, the report said.

The first officer was joined by a second and they pursued the vehicle at speeds up to 100 mph before calling off the chase because the vehicle was being driven recklessly and swerving across three lanes of traffic, according to the police report.

The FPPD officer was later notified by members of the Tavares Police Department that McCray had come to a stop and appeared to be in an "altered mental status." He was taken to a local hospital for a medical evaluation.

If you're not going on vacation when the off-season starts then getting arrested seems to be the only other option.  Obviously I'm being sarcastic, but this off-season is off to a hot start for arrests.
